~ Our Float Trips ~
The Caddo River rises in the Ouachita Mountains in west central Arkansas. Most of the time it is a Class I-II moderate whitewater river. Its path runs near Black Springs, Norman, Caddo Gap, Glenwood and Amity on its way to De Gray Lake. Scenery along the river is excellent, with heavily forested ridges, rock outcroppings, translucent green water, an abundance of native animal and plant life, and excellent fishing. It is a typical pool-and-drop river that is gentle enough for novice paddlers, yet with enough whitewater excitement to entertain those who prefer a bumpy ride over flat water. As with most Arkansas streams, the Caddo River is seasonal, running best from March through June, very low and slow during the summer, and marginal the rest of the year except after heavy local rainfall. 

~ Our Canoe and Kayak Trips ~
All times depend on how much you paddle or float and how often you stop and play.


Arrowhead to Glenwood: We are usually able to run this route until late June. It is 7.8 miles and takes 4-6 hours,. It starts at Arrowhead. When the flow slow, this stretch of the river provides excellent small mouth bass fishing and catfishing. Small rapids, long gravel bars, willow thickets and moderate pools define the river's approach to Glenwood. Minimum water level for the float level is about 5 feet. Above 6.5 feet, we only allow kayaks on this portion of the river. 

Norman to Arrowhead: This float is 8 miles and can only be floated when the water is above 6 ft. This is usually early in the season, usually through April and in to May. Normal time to float is 3 - 5 hours. The flow can be very fast and difficult for inexperienced paddlers. We will put you in at Norman. As you approach the Arrowhead you will see along the right bank in the area known as Caddo Gap, hot springs bubble up into the river. The thermal waters create a sensation uncommon on most rivers. Small rapids, great fishing, and Caddo Gap, a narrow opening where the river flows between ridges on either side, define the river's approach to Arrowhead.

Glenwood Downriver: We float these 3 miles of river when it is too low for the upper float.  Normal float time is 2-3 hours. We do have to charge an additional $6/boat, since we do not own the take out location. Thank you for
understanding..


~ Our Tube Trips ~
Caddo River Ranch to Arrowhead: Our most popular tube float is near Arrowhead. We are able to float this early in the season. It is 1.5 miles and takes 2-3 hours depending water levels. As you approach the Arrowhead you will see along the right bank in the area known as Caddo Gap, hot springs bubble up into the river. The thermal waters create a sensation uncommon on most rivers. Small rapids, great fishing, and Caddo Gap, a narrow opening where the river flows between ridges on either side, define the river's approach to Arrowhead. 

Glenwood to Fish Nest: This is our short low water tube route and is about 1.1 miles in length. We float this beautiful portion of the river when the water is too low for the Caddo River Ranch to Arrowhead float.  


 Glenwood Downriver: We float these beautiful 3 miles of river when it is too low for the upper float.  Normal float time is 3-5 hours.
